Re: Sealant recomendation
Yeah they do, but everything above 3200 is an adhesive, which I don't want or need. I really prefer not to use adhesives when there are mechanical fasteners holding things together. 3200 has silicon in it and I really don't like to use silicon based products.
That's a good point about making asure the sealant is compatible with the type of plastic. As I recall, there are two different types of plastics predominantly used for windows, and I need to use the right sealant. Problem is, I don't know which type of plastic this window is made from.
That might not be an issue though. The plastic window is sealed to a frame, and I don't think the leak is is between the plastic and the frame, but rather the frame and the boat. But I won't know until I get it apart and fill the window with water to see if it leaks.
Surely there is a sealant available that is non-adesive, thick and contains no silicon?
